- The utility identifier is:
The TTX To TMX Conversion utility allows you to generate TMX documents from TTX files.
<Tu>element that have a translation are converted into TMX entries. An un-translated TTX will generate an empty TMX. Entries that have no translation or text outside
<Tu>elements are counted as "items not translated".
The common parameters are the options specified from the application calling the utility rather than in the options dialog box of the utility itself. For this utility the common parameters you need to specify are the following:
|Files of the first input list||- Needed (the TTX files to process)|
|Root for the first input list||- Not Needed|
|Files of the second input list||- Not Needed|
|Root for the second input list||- Not Needed|
|Files of the third input list||- Not Needed|
|Root for the third input list||- Not Needed|
|Input language||- Needed sometimes|
|Output language||- Needed sometimes|
|Input default encoding||- Not Needed|
|Output default encoding||- Not Needed|
|Location and names for output files||- Needed|
One TMX output for each input file -- Select this option to
generate a one TMX document for each TTX input file. Each TMX document is
generated in the same folder as the input file, with the same name, but with a
.tmx extension. If another file with the same name already exists
it is overwritten without warning.
Single TMX output for all input files -- Select this option to generate a single TMX document from all the TTX input files to process. The TMX document path is the one you specify below the option.
Full path of the TMX document -- Enter the full path of the single TMX document to generate.
Append to the TMX file if it exists already -- Set this option to add the output of the current process to an existing TMX document. If this option is set and the specified file does not exists, it is created.
Note that the header of the TMX document is not re-created if the file exists, so any information already there will remain, even if it is not corresponding to the translation units you are appending (for example the source and target language defaults).
Use <bpt> and <ept> when possible -- Set this option to generate
a TMX document with
<bpt> for starting and
ending inline codes found in the TTX files. If this option is not set, all
inline codes will be generated as
<ph> TMX codes.
Use the source and target languages of the TTX files -- Set this option to use the source and target languages declared in the TTX files in the generated TMX documents. If this option is not set, the program uses the input and output languages the user has specified instead. If you generate a single output document, and this option is set, the languages used are the ones declared in the first file processed.
You can specify a list of attributes to be written out along with each translation unit generated from the TTX files. You can specify as many attributes as you want. The values of the attributes can be empty, and you can define several attributes with the same name if needed.
Add -- Click this button to create a new attribute. Edit Attribute dialog box is opened automatically.
Edit -- Click this button to edit the current attribute and its value. This opens the Edit Attribute dialog box.
Remove -- Click this button to remove the attribute currently selected from the list. The entry is removed without prompt for confirmation.
datatype attribute to -- Set this option
to specify your own value for the TMX
datatype attribute. If this
option is set, the value used is the one specified in the edit field of this
option. If this option is not set, the value used is taken directly from the TTX
O-tmf -- Enter the original TM format identifier. This value
will be used with the
o-tmf attribute in the header of the TMX
